I’ve seen that Target has a “Prebiotic Immune Support” baby formula. Does anyone know what this is all about? How would I know if my 7 month old needs this type as opposed to the regular “compare to Similac Advance” (blue can) version?
~Thanks for any tips!
Interesting article, K. My babe got breastmilk for the first 6 months, so he’s been healthy as anything (I’m a 32 year old former strictly formula-fed baby and have never been sick a day in my life…not even chicken pox) so either the formula I’ve been giving him or my family’s lucky genes are keeping everyone healthy! I may skip the prebiotic thing. It’s amazing what these formula companies come out with claiming it’s what you “NEED”!
My daughter is now 8 months old, and up until Dec. 27th she was fed Parents Choice Immune Support formula (milk based, prebiotics added) She did great with this until Christmas Eve, when she started getting HORRIBLE diahrreah. We decided to take her off the formula for a day and just give her baby food,oatmeal and pedialyte, which ended the diahrreah. So she was switched to a soy formula which helped but also made her spit up every time she ate. So, we were told to put her on a lactose free milk based formula. She doesnt get diahrreah, but she gets horrible gas pains and severe constipation. I dont think shes allergic to milk protein because she doesnt get rashes or have any trouble breathing or anything, but I really think she cannot digest milk properly. Has anyone elses baby been through this and what did you have to do? Her doctor told us to decide for ourselves which formula is better for her, so im just seeking advice. Thanks!
Also… is it true that soy formula messes up baby’s reproductive system or anything like that?
